Saints return home after delay in Seattle

New Orleans, La. - The Saints are back home after a flight delay pushes back their return from Seattle.

The team landed at Armstrong International Airport about 3:40pm.

The afternoon return didn't bring a big crowd, but a few die-hard fans who felt it was important to welcome the team home did show up at the airport.

"There's no reason not to be upbeat about the Saints. They've had an excellent season," said fan Charles Walton.

Walton adds that he thinks it's important for the fans to be loud in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome to make it more difficult for the Panthers this Sunday.
